Heads up, folks around Roanoke, Virginia! There is a three day yarn crawl happening in your neck of the woods, May 30, 31 and June 1 2013. The give-aways include door prizes at each shop, and a grand prize of yarns, supplies and gift cards valued at over $500! In order to be eligible for the grand prize, you must get your card punched at each of the six shops on the tour. Punch cards may be picked up, and completed cards dropped off, at any participating shop on the tour.
But the really cool thing about this tour, in my opinion, is this: each LYS is partnering with a different Virginia hand dyer to provide a custom, one of a kind yarn during the tour. Here is a list of participating shops and their hand dye partners:
Mosaic Blacksburg – Mosaic’s own
Yarn Explosion – Green Dragon Yarns / David Simpson
Orchardside Yarn Shop-The Flock Bransonas
The Crooked Stitch – Blue Ridge Yarns
Woolly Jumper Yarns – Unplanned Peacock Studios
Mosaic Roanoke – Wolle’s Color Changing Cotton
We have made an interactive Virginia Knits Virgina Yarn Crawl Map with info about each shop for your use.
